Protect Female Athletes under Title IX
A significant step towards the fight for women’s equality was marked by the passage of Title IX. This civil rights law, enacted on June 23, 1972, established a way for female athletes to have equal opportunity and fair competition in sports designated for women and girls.  
 
Today, equal opportunity and fair play for women athletes must be safeguarded. Following the Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, acting in defense of Title IX is more critical than ever. The factual definition of sex is being redefined to include “gender identity” placing female athletes’ safety, opportunity, and rights at risk.
 
Concerned Women for America and our women's sports coalition partners are fiercely advocating for the rights of women athletes everywhere. We have encouraged Congress to act by endorsing the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act of 2020 (H.R. 5702 and S.4649).
 
This legislation protects the core purpose of Title IX by making it, “a violation of federal law for a recipient of federal funds who operates, sponsors, or facilitates athletic programs or activities to permit a person whose sex is male to participate in an athletic program or activity that is designated for women or girls.”   
 
Recent events and court decisions can be disappointing, but now is not the time to back down - it is the time to act! Join the fight to protect female athletes by asking your members of Congress to cosponsor the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act of 2020 to defend fair play and prohibit sex discrimination in women’s sports.
